The Jersey Shore has our eyes on the track of Joaquin and what impace it may have on our area. So does Meteorologist Dan Zarrow.

As we wake up this morning, Dan tells us the latest on the track of Joaquin...

"TROPICAL STORM JOAQUIN HASN'T MOVED MUCH SINCE YESTERDAY, AND IS NOW ABOUT 800 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF NEW JERSEY.  JOAQUIN IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A CATEGORY ONE HURRICANE TODAY.

THE MAJORITY OF OUR COMPUTER FORECAST MODELS HAVE COME AROUND TO A SOLUTION THAT HAS JOAQUIN MAKING LANDFALL SOUTH OF NEW JERSEY - SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE DELMARVA AND THE CAROLINAS.

THAT WOULD STILL BE A PRETTY MESSY SITUATION FOR US HERE IN JERSEY.  IMPACTS FOR FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY COULD INCLUDE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL TOTALS OF 5 TO 8 INCHES, FREQUENT WIND GUSTS OVER 50 MPH, AND FLOODING (BOTH COASTAL AND INLAND).

ALTHOUGH THIS IS THE GOING CONSENSUS FORECAST, THERE ARE A FEW OUTLIER MODEL TRACKS - INCLUDING THE ALMIGHTY EUROPEAN MODEL - THAT ULTIMATELY PUSH JOAQUIN OUT TO SEA".

You can stay up do date by checking out Dan's forecast anytime, and stay with 94.3 The Point for any updates or changes in the track of the storm.
